Hi ladies,

It's a work day and I'm just starting to "spark" now. I just finished my stationary bike intervals. I'm not feeling as well as I have been but I'm sure it's because of last week's stress and the fact that I'm not sleep well still because of it. I hoping tonight will be the night that I sleep, sleep, sleep. Other than that though, everything is good. We even had a lovely dinner out last night for my youngest son's birthday. He wanted an ice cream cake so that was a bonus because I don't like ice cream. :) Win/Win.

Raine - it sounds like you had such a nice afternoon! I'm glad you ran away from work - it sounds like you needed that break. Snow shoveling is such hard work, isn't it?!?! I hope your hubby's car problems aren't too serious. What a bummer!

Claire - Such wonderful news about your hubby! *Woohoo*!!!! Saying prayers for David tonight.

Jen - It's great to hear that your son's performance went well and that now he can relax and just focus on schoolwork. I'm looking forward to Christmas Break too.

Holly - What baking are you up to now? I'll have to pop over to see if you have a new blog. :)

All my warmest wishes to the other lovely ladies out there! I hope everyone is having a good start to the week.

Hi ladies,
I ran away from work today. The group that we "partner" with is so disorganized, they keep changing meetings, places etc...then do not follow up with people. I ended up at a 2:00 meeting where the building was locked, no one there..went to the other building...no meeting...so I got in my car and headed home. Stopped at the grocery store to buy fixings for chili and warm bread and maybe some wine. Shoveled out the space for my husband to drive in, got a nice wood fire going for him down in the rec room, and the chili simmering on the stove. He just got home and is out blowing the rest of the driveway. So pretty out all afternoon with the snow gently falling. Seems so good to be home and being a real wife. Even though the body is on fire aching from the shoveling, I don't care. I almost feel like since it doesn't matter what I do and I keep getting worse, I'm going to enjoy what I like to eat, drink what I like to drink and find time for my husband and me. Of course, I know I wont allow myself to get too far off track...I worked too hard to lose what I did.

Poor DH came home and his engine light is on again. Needs an oil pressure valve now. His motor went up last week so he just paid 2000 to put in a new motor. He's pretty bummed. He was surprised to pull into a clean spot so he could snow blow and he hasn't been downstairs. Hopefully a nice warm fire and warm chili will help sooth his rough day. Yes, I enjoy being home and being a wife.

Here he comes. I promise to try to do better on the board. I miss you guys everyday.

Love
=Raine

Enjoy the concerts!

Hello precious Divas! I've been gone ALOT -- CHristmas concert tomorrow night and Sun so lots of extra rehearsals. And no notifications for the Dec thread......

DH's last 10% is done TODAY. All that mess is now behind us! Thank you God, and thank you Divas for your prayers. I am SOARING today!

Now I have another request for the Mighty Diva Prayer Team. One of our (church's) beloved musicians had a seizure at school a few days ago. Turns out it was a brain aneurysm (sp). They've done 2 surgeries that were successful. He has also had a stroke during this process. He is in critical but stable condition right now. His name is David. Please pray your healing prayers on his behalf.

PS Cathy was the other PB, right? Maybe? (I blame my bad memory on the menopause!!)

Gah! Leslie! Please forgive my ever-dwindling brain! The singing sounds wonderful - were you quoting G&S at the end?

It sounds like you truly have some nice holiday spirit!

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Janet - you sounds really refreshed! And great news about your son's new job.

Wendy - great news about YOUR new job! It's really so exciting and so is your new found energy on the treadmill! Yay! Also, I hope the visit with your sister is wonderful.

Holly and Raine - Hooray for your snow!

Connor's group was absolutely wonderful - far beyond expectation. He did a fabulous job with the lights and he's also exhausted and ready to have only homework to deal with for a little bit. This will be one more week of high pressure for both him and for me and then things are smooth sailing for a bit.

Have a lovely evening!

Good afternoon, my new friends!

I spoiled myself and got a new haircut. I'm liking it a lot but my usual stylist was sick. Her replacement ... OMG, she gave me the most wonderful scalp massage!!! I think I'm in love! :) I even accomplished a 40 min. walk/jog with Cocoa the doggie. I tried it on Friday and I thought why not? I tried it again today and jogged a teensy bit more. I probably look funny but that's okay, I DID IT! I am trying to do a few other exercises to add to the stationary bike and my cycling routine.

Wendy - Good grief! If two co-workers were fighting!! lol When is your sister coming? How exciting! I'm happy for you! Great job on the treadmill - beware munchies! Stay away from the pretty lady!

Holly - I think every time it snows, I will think of you and smile! :D

That's it? I'm all caught up. Hello everyone! Son #2 is starting a new job in quite a posh restaurant. Positive quality ... he is a really hard worker and loyal employee. He was asked to come for an interview by a former manager. I'm really hoping that he will meet a whole bunch of young, energetic, vibrant people. It's a happening place! Please, please, please :)

Test was fine. It was some dumb thing, if two co- workers were fighting, would you..A join them. B Tell on them, C quit your job D mind your own business? I got the job. Still waiting for background clearances, bonding issues all that paperwork. Next project is preparing for my sister's first visit in ten years. She is coming for snow and hugs, got lots of both.

Holly when I saw the weather report my DH said your friend must be jumping for joy and I said I am sure she is. In fact because of you I am trying my best to like it. Not LOVE but no longer hate. Got all the gear so that helped.

My tree is up, gifts wrapped and ready for parties to begin. First one this weekend. I'm putting in extra miles on the treadmill because I want to look so good that a munchies can not touch me. Or at least feel like it.

Glad everything is going better for you all. I love the prayer request page. I feel the love.

Warmest wishes to you all for a great week. I had a really nice day. Hubby and I went for a 10 mile bike ride. It was quite chilly (a bit below freezing) but the sun was shining for about half the ride and then it was naughty and hid behind clouds. That's when it got too cold and my toes started to freeze. All in all, a successful ride though. Eating well and drinking water. I'm starting to perk up again. Luckily, life is getting easier teen wise and I'm learning to draw lines in the sand. Enough is enough. Damage has been done because I've been too loving, understanding and forgiving. I'm toughening up and protecting myself in the process. SparkPeople has really helped! It is another tool in my toolbelt.

Leslie - it sounds like you are getting into the Christmas spirit. How lovely although it was probably pretty easy for you when you are surrounded by beautiful music so much.

Wendy - Yahoo! Treadmill miles!!! Good luck with your tests on Monday and the new job. Double yahoo!

Holly - thinking about that punch recipe. I actually HAD an Uncle Bud!!! Isn't that a hoot?

Raine - You described such a pretty picture with your tree in the window and the falling snow. Lovely!

Jen - How was your son's performance? :) What fun - it sounds like you had a busy day planned. Thank you for wishing me a good Sunday. Yes, it was!

I think I'm all caught up. I hope I haven't missed any new posts. Hello to Claire and the Sues. There are two Sues, right? I'd better stop, I'm getting confused. Thank you for being you - have a great week!

Greetings Divas!

I'm watching football and cleaning up my living so i can put my bit of Holiday spirit. I am taking a 'spark' part right now, plus a cuddle break with a certain 16 is boycat. Oliver is slung over my shoulder, purring up a storm. Can you say SPOILED!?!
Raine! so good to see you post. I'm not doing any theatre right now. But I am singing with the William Baker Festival Singers which I absolutely love. We had our concert-Christmas Atlanta which was amazing. When we had a dinner break and I opted for Whole Foods so I could get what I wanted and measure out the amounts. So next door was a Borders with a Sale...lawdy, went a little crazy, but it's all worth it...include the purple reindeer antlers..tee hee~! No, I didn't wear them during the concert.
Okay, break is over...must swifer the floor, tra la
Love to all

Popping in to log treadmill miles. Yes I said MILES. the prayer spot was on my heart and I felt the need to have a safe place to ask for devine intervention. This spot here is always an inspiration. Love you ladies. New job starts Tuesday with some testing Mon morning. Arrgh I hate tests.

Thanks, Jen, good to see you guys again. So you will be having a whole new group of kids? What do you teach.

Not to worry HOlly, I would always call first. I have someone scheduled to start again on Thursday. Cleaned house yesterday, today jsut getting through papers on the desk and trying to move. There is not a muscle or joint that is not full force aching today. It is what it is I guess, even if no one knows what "it" is. Anway.

Claire,I'm sorry, I've lost touch here. I thought everything had resolved itself with DH, No? I am so sorry you are dealing with anything. I hope it is nothing too serious? My prayers are with you. Are you singing in the choir again this year for Christmas?

Wendy, have a great week at your new job! You sounded so happy and relieved and excited. So good to feel that energy from you.

SueChan I saw someone welcoming you back, I know I'm late but how was the trip to Australia. I thought of you just yesterday as I was organizing my dresser and came across the beautiful necklas you bought.

Sue, did you have to put wood in again this year? I feel so bad, I do not even know how your study for your nursing degree is going.

Leslie, what Christmas plays are you in this year?

I feel like I have so much to catch up on. Hugs to everyone else and have a good week.

It's snowing out. I just told DH...look we live in a snowglobe, as we set looking out our 170" of front window with the Christmas tree set up. So pretty.

Have a great week everyone.
Love you all

-Raine

Good Sunday Morning Everyone,
Janet, I'm hoping it's an especially good one for you - you deserve and need it!

Raine, it's so lovely to have your wonderful energy back with us.

Claire - how is your DH doing? What was the resolution of that last % of what he needed to get through?

I have a full day today - seeing the performance of my son's play again, this time with my mom, cooking, sorting, planning, chores, etc. Tomorrow is my last day of classes for the semester - I'm happy that my schedule will be changing, even though I love teaching.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hugs,
Jen

Jan, good to hear you sounding stronger. Just take everything one day, one minute at a time and reach for help wherever and whenever you need it. You will have support here. I know. They've always had my back, no matter how many times I go into my gopher hole. Have a wonder God Blessed Sunday tomorrow everyone.
I just love the holidays!

Okay, time to Spark. I'm lucky that I have been doing this for a little over 3 months because with the last few days, it was nice to put my life in Spark-Autodrive. emoticon I survived, with your help, and I did not stuff my sadness down with food. I posted a little blog if you would care to read it about this experience.

Raine - how wonderful of you to pop back into my life. Thank you for your kindness. I hope you can get your trip in to see Holly - how wonderful for you both!

Jen and Holly - I sent you both my email address and I would love to hear this secret. Thank you both for your kindness and understanding. Anxiety seems to be an epidemic!

Claire - I am going to look into Al-Anon. I didn't even think about that!

Wendy - What can I say? You started something on the day I needed it the most and I will be forever grateful to you. Thank you.

I am exhausted but feeling SO strong. I made it. I can do this!

Thanks Jen, I'm going to try to get back on here more often.

ooops...Holly I posted this on the wrong thread, so here it is. Holly, I'm so bummed. I was going to surprise you today and come up for a visit, because DH and SS had planned their year shopping trip in Syracuse, on which I'm not allowed. Just dad and son. So, I thought, perfect time for me to go North. But his vehicle toasted the engine (no oil in it and no one knows where it went - we change our oil everything 3 months like clockwork) anyway, we just got his CRV back with a replacement engine. So he took my care to Syracuse as we want to get some more miles and feel for weather or not the replacement engine will give us any problems. Are you working at school full time now or hit and miss as a sub? I thought I might just take a day off if I can possibly find one. The new girl didnt work out. Anyway. Just wanted to let you know PB2 almost made it there. Almost is a step closer to Need to someday....
Love you
Welcome home Kevin.

Hi Raine - it was wonderful to get a "glimpse" of you. I hope that you can join us more often.

Jan - I wrote to you on the other thread in terms of your challenging situation. Also, like Holly, I've been in the anxiety h--- and also have methods for getting out of it. I think, actually, that Holly and I have used the same thing. It really is miraculous. I've also found that yoga helps me de-stress in a wonderful, healthy way. My heart goes out to you.

For everyone - I hope you're having a lovely, constructive (or not constructive!) weekend. I'm off to do some cookie baking.

Hugs,
Jen

Hi Divas,
Just wanted to stop by and tell you I think of you all often. Wendy great thread for prayers and yes, God is good - ALL THE TIME! Congratulations on your intervention. Jan you are in my prayers and I left you a note on the other thread. It is so good and comforting to see you all still here and thriving. Holly, I am still hoping to get up your way soon. Same old same old here, no sense even talking about it all.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas season of warm memories, creation of new memories, laughter and love.

Love you all!
-Raine

Hi everyone, I had a nice visit from my sister-in-law this morning and we had a good chat. I'm feeling a bit better after a lovely walk with silly Cocoa in the sunshine. #2 son is home and we are being 'civil' - which is a definite improvement over past years. Unfortunately, who comes in the door just as I start to write this note? Yes, the girl is here for a visit. *sigh* My anxiety level is up but manageable. I think it was the combo of the unexpected morning visitor and then the whole sordid life story when I just got home from a tiring day at work that tipped me over the edge.

Holly - thank you for your kind words and encouragement.
Wendy - I really was so glad to see that new discussion topic this morning. Thank you. I'm so happy for you and your new job!
Leslie - good luck with the workouts. I'm sure it will help to have a workout buddy. I'm not sure how the Wii works - let me know if you figure it out! lol
Jen - that candied walnuts with orange sounds a bit too yummy!

Hello to everyone else! I'm going to go put laundry away and then try to rest even though the "stress" is in the house. I didn't sleep well last night. Although, that might not be a good idea. Maybe I should just hang in "awake" mode and be really tired for tonight.

Wishes for a wonderful 1st weekend in December to everyone!

Wendy, your timing for that new thread is unbelievable. I posted a little plea for helpful prayer. Thank you!!!

I hope everyone is having a good Friday. I wish I wasn't such a mess. I must focus on my journey to health and I must not let anyone take me off the right path now that I've finally found it. My apologies.

Thanks for the cheers. I am walking on air. I got my shopping done and have begun wrapping. Tree up this weekend, seeing Santa and riding on Reindeer drawn carriages and all that stuff. Then for the rest of the month its parties, visitors and so much fun. I feel like I am seven again. .gif" alt="emoticon" width="42" height="42" border="0"> emoticon
I was just inspired to create a prayer request page. Look for it if you need extra help. emoticon Wendy

Oh My Goodness - WENDY!!!! WOOOOHOOOO!!!! What a wonderful, inspiring post. Power of Diva Prayer indeed.

I'm so, so pleased for you. This is absolutely fabulous.

Leslie - I know that there are some wii programs that would work. Also, could a daily "nudge" e-mail work?

Hope everyone has a LOVELY Friday - I know Wendy will!!!

Love and hugs,
Jen

Wendy, WOOOOPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE! emoticon
Haters, be gone, weg weg mit dem, weg weg! Put Divas and the power of pray together, just watch God smile! I am proud of you Diva-Sista!!!

I was just going to drive by, but I am so glad I did!
I had some of that going too. I have a friend who work out in the field and I am really good friends with her. I got to know her when the state could afford resort workshops. RM ask me if I was the one who said I would "pair" up with to work out. I KNOW I need to, but I can't afford a gym right now. I told I would love to do it whether it was me or not So I need to create a work out space. Her dr want her to work out to rid all her stress. She is slim, but just want to be acountable and create a buddy system. If you can play Wii with some else online, surely you could work out together? Or maybe do Skype. Any thoughts? emoticon
Okay I did laudry tonight and saw my hunnybunny too. need to put it all away before I hit the hay....SOOO glad it's Friday tomorrow.

Sounds like a busy time Jen. I love the holidays for all the fun stuff we get to do. Baking, giving gifts to loved ones, gathering together, fires, smells, the love in the air. Awww

I posted here but once I saw how long it is, I moved it to long article section of the board. Please take a few minutes to see how the power of diva prayer changed my life yesterday.

After catching up on the November thread...

Jan, I echo Holly - I do my baking early, freeze things and have one tin for family. It works. ;-) I do make these candied walnuts with orange peel and chocolate and those are quick and can't be made too far in advance, so I'll do those in batches before giving them away.

Wendy - prayers absolutely coming your way in terms of the job situation. How wonderful they waited for your resume - that sounds promising! When will you hear? And thanks for your kind words on my posts. Also, we'll have to have a Midwest Diva "Do" at some point. ;-)

Well, now truly back to work!

Good Morning December Divas!
Mmmmm.... Holly, you're making my mouth water! Ditto what Wendy said, once you're ready.
I have to go back and see if I missed things on the last November day thread.
I'm ready for a new year and new work. BTW... Claire (or was it Raine?) suggested that Course in Weight Loss by Marianne Williamson? I LOVE it. It's been really kicking my butt in a good way. I'm just working on it a bit at a time, because I have a lot of work to do in terms of getting my head on straighter. And yes, Sock, it's been crazy-busy, but it will get much better after this week. Con has tech week for "Little Shop of Horrors" and the show goes up on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and then they have strike Sun/Mon. He didn't get home until 10:45 last night, and he started school at 8:00 a.m. I'm tying up my semester, my mother has a slew of doctor appts. and so do I, Dave has a colonoscopy on Tuesday, and so it goes... Tomorrow night, though, there is a wonderful Kristkindlmarkt at our farmers market, which is across the street from Con's high school, so we'll go there for dinner (they have WONDERFUL street vendors there), go to the show, and then head back to the market (which has a wonderful old building filled with stores next to it) and do some midnight madness shopping while Connor finishes up. I'm looking forward to something purely fun!
My house will smell good today, too - it's the start of my holiday baking.
I hope everyone has a fabulous Thursday!

Hugs,
Jen

Slacking Sock here...getting plugged in with the December thread.

Prayers coming your way for job relief, Wendy!

Holly, did Kev make it home?

Jan, you are rocking with the exercise, girl! I need to get busy and catch up with you again (I'm fighting a cold and am taking it easy this week to see if I can beat it).

Jen, you sound like you've been so busy. Hope it settles down for you pretty soon.

Mana, great to see you posting again! How nice of your job to let you come up for air once in a while. LOL!

That's all I can remember off the top of my head. I'm off to read for a short bit and then hit the sack. I hope a little pampering will make this sort-of-kind-of cold go away!

Hugs to all the delightful divas!
